Do not thaw the patties at room temperature. Instead, stick the patties in the refrigerator and wait until they are at least partially thawed. You can grill partially frozen patties, but it may take longer for the centers to finish. This could also result in an unevenly cooked burger.

Store hamburger patties the same way you’d store ground beef. Either keep the meat in its original container or wrap in saran wrap and insert into a plastic bag. The meat should stay fresh for one to two days.

Homemade mayonnaise is delicious on its own, but adding some freshly grated horseradish gives it extra zing. This mayo’s perfect on a burger, a roast beef sandwich, or anywhere else you want a kick of heat.
Game plan: Have all the ingredients at room temperature before you start; the mayo will come together better. Also, because the egg doesn’t get cooked, use a very fresh or pasteurized egg. Once made, the mayonnaise should be stored in an airtight container and can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
